Children are our future. Yet, 13.7 million children & teens in the United States suffer from obesity or are at risk of their lives being cut short from its effects- like stroke, heart disease & cancer. Because many of our Southern California communities still lack access to fresh, unprocessed foods, many of our children aren’t thriving in their health.
No matter where we come from, food and beverages are an essential part of our way of life.
Caramel Connections Foundation is proud to be a part of the American Beverage Association’s Balance Calories Initiative. We believe that when families gain access to food, health, and wellness education, they can be empowered to harvest their own nutritional foods, improve their health, and take back their future.
